Hello Space Friends,
Today as part of EvE’s 16th birthday event I received an item commemorating the Jita riots and I have to be honest I was disappointed with the description.
Part of the description reads as follows; “capsuleers staged a mass uprising against the intolerable state of affairs in New Eden’s space industries and markets of the day.”
Kind of a vague and misleading dont you think? I remember it slightly differently;
Broken promises/game; Ship spinning and trying to load Captains Quarters every time you docked with the hardware of the time.
Micro transaction prises that would put Bethesda to shame.
Oh and that leaked document.
I do not post this to complain or in anyway resurface these issues, that after all took place a long time ago now. I just feel that especially with the current state of the games industry as a whole CCP should not lose sight of why the riots happened. (fondly remembers that photo of a dishevelled looking Hilmar)
So maybe change this description, if that is technically possible, and show those who were not there that we went though the same s**t most other game community’s are going though right now and came out the other side together!
Happy Birthday EvE Online! Looking forward to wearing my free monocle with pride
